A beautiful, antique Victorian bohemian garnet brooch, in the form of a large crescent moon with 8 pointed star above.
Encrusted throughout with claw set, blood red garnets (I suspect one is a replacement as it is much pinker than the rest and has a tiny chip by the claw. ...see the star point at 9 o'clock).
The back shows wear/tarnish to the 'garnet gold' i.e. gold casing, commensurate with age & use.
The brooch fittings are later replacements, including a secure roll over safety catch fastener, preferred by many for safety in wear.
Measurements: 1 3/8" wide by 1" tall.
Looks amazing in wear!!
